in reply to Regular Expression to Parse Data from a PDF

Another possibility to try: if you're on a linux-y system and have the poppler package available which has a pdftotext (RHEL has it in its 'poppler-utils' RPM) that might work for you. Open a pipe from something like pdftotext -layout foo.pdf - and see if that gets what you need from your PDF for your purposes.
